What is the team news?

Manchester City

Kevin De Bruyne is a doubt for Manchester City. The influential Belgium midfielder missed Sunday’s victory over Southampton with a muscle injury and could be sidelined again.

Ilkay Gundogan could return, but Fabian Delph remains suspended and both Benjamin Mendy (knee) and Claudio Bravo (Achilles) are long-term absentees.

Provisional squad: Ederson, Muric, Walker, Danilo, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Kompany, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Foden, D Silva, B Silva, Sane, Sterling, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Diaz, Aguero, Jesus.

Liverpool

James Milner is in contention to return for Liverpool. A minor muscular injury ruled Milner out of the Boxing Day win over Newcastle but the midfielder is expected to be available for the Etihad Stadium clash.

Striker Dominic Solanke is struggling with a muscle problem, although he is yet to make a first-team appearance for the leaders this season.

Provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Mignolet, Clyne, Moreno, Henderson, Keita, Lallana, Sturridge, Origi.
